Man Set On Fire

By Johnny Shannon 

An altercation ends in fire--sending one man to the hospital, and another to jail.  

We're told it all happened at around 6:30 Friday Morning near Applewhite Road. 

"After lighting the victim on fire, the suspect lit the residence the victim had been living in on fire" said Segeant Javier Salazar with the San Antonio Police Department. He told 550 KTSA News the suspect then left, only to crash in to a nearby ravine.

"The suspect was placed under arrest at the scene of the crash. He was suffering from injuries from the crash, as well as some burns" Salazar said. 

As for the man who was burned, his wife drove him to a nearby convenience store--from which he was transported to the hospital with burns over 80 to 90 percent of his body.
